Mar Vermeio

I came upon a far shore after wandering empire. This is what I wandered for, carting centuries with me. The glass and rock were worn by time to sand, finely ground beneath my toes, and the sun shines vermillion on the water. I could scarcely have imagined that.

You're an undiscovered country, an impossible inland sea. You opened up your ribcage for me, for me.

The stars are strange here. I can see them, and I want to.

You're an undiscovered country, an impossible inland sea. You opened up your ribcage for me, for me.

There were years, long years, as the world spun and I drank to it, and I could scarcely live then. There were years, long years, where I truly thought I'd never fall in love like this again.

Seabirds colonized this shore. On oceans they flew. I opened up my ribcage for you, for you.

Restored

I need a frame to keep me contained as I drift in an ocean of pacific dreams. I need a place to lay myself down with my collected things underneath and around me. 

Here they stack us so high, and we do the same. I am early to rise these days here in my home, where I am restored. 

I plan to stay, and to show I will stay, I surround myself with permanence. I have regrets of decisions I made, but this will not be one of those things. 

Here they stack us so high, and we do the same. I have been cast aside.  Now I'm reclaimed here in my home where I am restored. 

Now I shall be a constant man, first to my physical space in the world, then to my love who deserves nothing less than to drift in my ocean of pacific dreams. 

Here they stack us so high and we do the same. I have been thrown aside.  Now I'm reclaimed, and this is my home where I am restored.

In The Right City (Crooked Steel Edit)

Last night I dreamed of the right city before me. I kissed my love goodbye and rode the trains at night with the right city outside, and I could not be happier.

The right city wins the odd championship, and the museums stand adjacent to the buildings and bridges, and in the pride of the night crooked steel arise, dirt and refuse on the walks outside.

My home overlooks the waterways, facile eyes passing me by, and constantly the people all look at me in the right way in the gardens, and I could not be happier.

And I found my love in the right city, I found a good job in the right city, and I could not be happier.
